    I've found that a lot of the lights are pretty good, but the mounting hardware has been the most concern. The nightriders have had issues as well as the cygolite

    Other mags may have better suggestions, but I use a BD rechargeable LED headlamp, because they were selling them for cheap at their end of year sale. I think my model isn't available anymore, but it's like the Spot. We have a few of these, so I grab the close one, I rarely use it, just to finish a dusk ride/skate ski.

    It all depends on how long you stay in each setting. Turbo is more like an instant-on high beam flash with the wired remote, so you wouldn't be riding and holding that down.

    FWIW - Shenkey 1000 lumen lights are $25/each and come with both bar and helmet mounts. I bought two and they have worked very well for my sub 2 hour night rides.

    Guy I know designed this. Pretty dope setup.

    Personally, I can't ride with a helmet light on a half shell. Moves around too much. Fortunately, I've got a Fox Proframe.

    Yeah, as annoying as a cord can be I prefer to have the battery in my pack instead of on top of my head. My neck prefers it that way.

    100g, fast charge, and a useful beam pattern... that's impressive.

    That looks dope.

    I couldn’t quickly see it in a quick scan of the page, but I assume at half power that thing could run for closer to 4 or 5 hours.

    As dope as it looks, I’d still recommend pairing it with a good ~1000lm wide distribution flood light (the softer the lens contrast the better) mounted on the bars and then running the Hangover in half power mode.

    You’ll end up with a setup where the bar light gives you shadow contrast and the helmet light fills in the details so that you have better 3D depth perception of rocks, roots, low clearance branches, jump landings, etc. The wide flood / soft shadows (lack of hard edged shadow lines) on the bar helps prevent create visual noise from your fork jittering or when you pop quick high speed steering corrections, pre-turn countersteer, etc. And then the helmet with a long throw spot fills in the details where you are looking.

    I’ve spent more time with these and they’re nice.
